The 5 holiday hair products you need

8th Jul 2024

If your case is always over the limit, or you’re heading on holiday with hand luggage only, you might want to streamline what you’re taking with you. And one way to do that is with your holiday hair products. By being clever about what you pack, and what you actually need to take with you, you can save space and make sure your hair looks good all through your trip.

Remember, rather than buying minis or overloading your case with your full-size products, you can decant your holiday hair products into smaller bottles so they’re easier to travel with.

Our fave hair products for holiday

Here are the 5 essential hair products we recommend packing in your case for a 2 week holiday. Add them to your packing list for your next holiday right now - we promise you and your hair will thank us!


The Pro:Tec Smoothing Mist Heat Protectant Spray is a travel must, especially if you’re going to be spending time in the sun or somewhere with a humid climate (or both). It not only protects your hair from the heat, whether that’s from styling tools or sunshine, but it also works to hydrate your hair while taming frizz and flyaways for a smooth, controlled finish.


Between the pool, sea, sand, SPF, sweat and sun your hair can suffer a little on holiday. You might find that your hair looks dull or dried out and you might feel like you have more build-up than usual. The Purify:ACV Cleanse Clarifying Shampoo is a paraben-free clarifying shampoo, designed to detoxify the hair and scalp. It works to wash away build-up and dirt without stripping colour or natural oils.


The sun can seriously damage your hair and leave it feeling rough, dry and dull. Thankfully The Liquid Glossing Hair Treatment Water can help you wave goodbye to all of the above, leaving you with silkier, shinier strands. This water-based rinse-out treatment will nourish and hydrate dry or damaged hair by smoothing the cuticle. The end result is shiny, healthy looking hair in minutes.

Sea Salt Spray

Just being at the beach doesn’t mean those perfect beachy waves will appear naturally overnight (we wish). However, our True:Grit Sea Salt Spray can help you to get textured, beachy waves with a medium hold and matte finish. No need to take a dip, just gorgeous holiday hair.


When it comes to travel and luggage limits, multifunctional products are the key to packing (a lot) lighter. And nothing works harder than our All:In Oil. It’s the perfect hydrating, moisturising leave-in oil that helps to boost shine and softness while reducing tangles. It also helps to protect, revitalise and restore your hair - so it’s perfect for holidays. It even helps your hair to dry quicker and handles frizz perfectly.


Shu-Lan, our salon educator at FFØR shared some tips for looking after your hair while you’re away. Here’s what she had to say: 


“Holidays can play havoc with your hair, but it doesn’t need to be the case. Start out by covering up your hair as much as possible with a hat or a scarf, and use a heat protector to stop sun damage. A hair oil or leave-in conditioner can go a long way to combat dry or damaged hair on holiday.


If you’re hitting the beach, rinse your hair after you swim and use your clarifying shampoo weekly to eliminate buildup. If you can skip any extra heat styling, then you should. If you can’t, keep on using your heat protectors. There are some cute, low maintenance natural hair styles you can keep your hair in like beach waves, messy buns and braids to cut back on the heat.”
